Time Buddy

To provide college students with a time management app which is specifically tailored for students. Time management is key in academia and we hope with this app will lower students stress levels related to this, keeping them well organised. Furthermore, we hope this app will improve the academic performance of the students as a result of this better time management reducing procrastination and keep students performing to their potential.

Project Description

Time buddy is a fun and easy to use app which will assist students on an everyday basis, helping them to structure and execute their plan for completing their assignments on time. This technological tool will give students access to their work, a notepad to store memos and their timetable. Each module will be clearly visible for the App users and they will be able to see how close to completion their certain assignments are. The app will offer a platform which the students can enter their personal modules and will allow the students to keep track of how each task in that module is progressing. Time Buddy’s notification system aims to make sure to keep you aware of upcoming deadlines and keep productivity levels high. The application will assist students effectively with their studies and relieve everyday pressure with it's easy to use interface and aesthetic features. 

Project Findings

The results from the survey made it clear that there was a space in the market for our app. The majority of the questions answered showed that people were interested in a time management app and currently struggle to manage time. It also suggested that the average student would benefit from a time management app. Going to class and doing assignments were the two top things that students found hard Changes to the timetable and homepage were applied in an effort to make the app more aesthetically appropriate to the users after the interviews. More colour was added and more information was given in the homepage of what the users could conduct through the app features. Students from User testing also suggested having the timetable on the app and a notes section would be ideal for app users.
